The new year is almost upon us, and gamers everywhere are still struggling to get their hands on a PlayStation 5. While the PS5 has been around for the better part of two months now, many of us have no hopes of getting one anytime soon. This isn’t good news for those who are hoping to get their hands on titles that won’t release for the PlayStation 4.
While The Elder Scrolls VI has been in development for the better part of a decade, many on the PS4, who aren’t able to upgrade to a PS5 yet, are wondering if they’ll be able to play it.
Will The Elder Scrolls VI Even Release For The PlayStation 5?
With Bethesda getting bought out by Microsoft, The Elder Scrolls VI on the PlayStation 5 alone seems like it’s no longer a possibility. While Skyrim released for multiple systems, including the Xbox and PlayStation, the same may not be the case once The Elder Scrolls VI releases. That’s because, while Bethesda has been developing The Elder Scrolls 6 since before Microsoft bought them out, that doesn’t mean Microsoft won’t pull rank and make the game an Xbox exclusive.
Does This Mean The Elder Scrolls VI Won’t Be On The PlayStation 4?
Bethesda’s original founder doesn’t believe Sony will get their hands on The Elder Scrolls series (if it were up to him), but he believes the worst when he says, “What Microsoft owns, Sony cannot get.”
While that is one barrier to The Elder Scrolls VI being on the PS4, the other barrier is the game will be on an entirely new engine Bethesda acquired when Microsoft purchased them. This engine might not be compatible with older generation consoles like the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
